Olive Springs School, District #2, was built in 1885 and is the oldest country school house on its original location in McPherson County. The building was used as a school until 1947. From then until the Forsbergs restored it in 1977, it was used for storing hay and machinery. It is now a unique art gallery displaying the paintings and prints of Maleta Forsberg as well as memorabilia of the country school era.
The school house is located 7 miles east of the I-135 exit #72, or 3 miles west of Roxbury, Kansas, at the corner of Smoky Valley Road and 24th Avenue. Visitors are welcome by appointment.
